Greg Pritchard Biography

The young and talented Greg Pritchard made a huge first impression with his unique voice on seasong three of Britain's Got Talent. As of now he is actually an ex-hotel worker even though he has told the press that it has been close he quit singing completely because people made fun of his voice. Such a talent would have never been seen because of immature ridicule towards his singing.

This 24-year-old blew the judges away with his singing and made way to the semi-finals with Greg Pritchards version of Nessun Dorma. Greg is not used to all this attention. Back in Cardiff where he lived before he moved back to his family three years ago he did not get that much attention. He sung along while listening music from such artist as Charlotte Churh and reached the same notes as her. All he has to say about his voice is: "It's unique. I can't think of any other adult male who can sing as high as a woman but still be able to reach the high notes like a woman." That is what makes his singing so great. On saturday you only heard his high notes, but it is true that he can sing the bass to. That will be left to the semi finals I think.

"I heard someone laughing and I remember thinking whether I should stop. I didn't want to be a comedy act. But I am so used to the ridicule that I just closed my eyes and went for it. The next thing I knew was a standing ovation."

Just like his fellow Welshman Shaheen Jafargholi, greg has really attracted the media, and with his looks and personality he has a true potential to become a huge star. He dedicated his performance to his father Spencer, who died aged 57 after complications during an operation.

It was very hard losing his father but he has to move along. His death came as a surprise. Greg Pritchard still imagines his father coming through the door one day and sit down with him. He would love that his father was there to see and hear him achieving all this. After his death Greg moved back to his family home with his young brother and mother. As tragic as it is he was forced to turn down a scholarship to the Britain's oldest independent theatre arts training school because they did not have the money for him to be living in london.

  1. He is absolutely amazing! I did some research and found another young counter tenor - Vitas. He sings mainly in Russian and is more famous in Asia, but still a good comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3yfFOq_CFQ

  3. I hope Greg wins!!! Forget Susan Boyle, he's much more unique and marketable!!
    I'd love to hear that he gets a record deal and becomes more famous than Brightman. I'd definitely buy any cd he releases. Maybe he could do a duet with Sasha Lazard or even better Josh Groban!!!!!

    Please everyone should vote for Greg Pritchard!!!
    *unfortunately, I can't 'cause I don't live in the U.K.*

    GO GREG!!!!!!!!!

  4. I watched Gred by chance on Youtube when I was looking at BGT. He has an extraordinary voice and I really hope he wins. Is he competing with Susna Boyle? Since I'm in the US I don't know how this show works. I love the three judges. It's amazing how much nicer Simon is on that show. I love Greg!!!

  10. I enjoyed your semi-final performance.
    It's remarkable that you had to compete under such unfair conditions.

    By my guess, the Royal family has already seen dozens if not hundreds of Hollies. You would have been a memorable act, unlike any they had ever seen. But I guess, it really isn't about the Royal family, its about meeting the judges own expectations. What a pity they don't have the imagination to see your performance.

  11. Greg, I learned about castrati singers when my kids were in Choir. Their Choral Director toured with a group in Europe. He is now an assoc Professor at Butler University. If you need some references for Europe, contact him: tbrimmer@butler.edu He may be able to put you in contact with someone who appreciates your talent. I do! You were amazing.

  12. The semi-final today was BS and totally unfair. Pritchard lost out because of sympathy for a child who was obviously not mature enough to even be in the competition to begin with. Once her tears started, Pritchard or anyone else in his place didn't stand a chance (and I have to wonder if that wasn't deliberately done....oh well.)

    I agree with the person who said there's been dozens of Hollies already, and it's 100% WRONG that her inappropriate behavior was put first priority over Pritchard's extraordinary and rare talent. Pritchard had to know this, and still he accepted their decision with so much class and grace. (Maybe he should have cried and stamped his feet?)

    I sincerely hope this Pritchard guy keeps trying to build a singing career because sooner or later, he WILL make it and he'll still be a legend, long after Hollie has been forgotten.

  13. I am gutted you didn't get through. I found you absolutely mesmorising to watch and listen to, I could watch and listen to you all day - your voice is beautiful, and so much better for coming from you, a guy (a gorgeous one at that - are you single?:-).
    It was very brave of you to do Barcelona, i guess switching that quick, with little time for a breath, must have been challenging, but your talent is by far more astonishing and unique than any of the other singers. I admire you, and really hope we see more of you, don't let this be the end of your dream.

  14. Great performance Greg. Loved it- and not just because I'm Welsh. I was disgusted with Simon Cowell overrulling the producers and allowing hollie to sing again. I can only think there were ulterior motives going on there.We all laughed at hollie's antics and couldn't believe the judges were taken in. Piers has definitely gone down in my estimation. In this programme you need more than talent - a sob story too it seems. I won't be watching again.
    Hope to hear more from you and good luck!

  16. I completely agree with the person who said that itwas completely unfair because of sympathy for a child who was obviously not mature enough to even be in the competition and i to think that it might have been done purposly but anyway we all still love you Greg xx

    Greg Pritchard sang far better than Maria Callas--and I have been a fan of hers for more than 50 years. Now it is time for Greg to sign professionally on stage and screen. I would buy his CD instantly, and I seldom buy canned music. But he is worth more than anyone.

  19. What an incredible voice and talent you have. If you had been in the same position with any of your other fellow contestants you would certainly have gone through. You leaving the show was a huge loss and hopefully you realise by being in the top 3 how popular you are.
    I so look forward to hearing you sing again
    You are a true star.

  20. I hope someone in the business has taken Greg very seriously and helped him into the profession- Greg should not be put on the 'back burner' at all. I hope someone stepped up to the plate and grabbed this great talent named Greg Pritchard!

  25. Greg's voice (castrato) is not common at all, and I am sure he can perform brilliantly under different circumstances. I love the sound of his voice, and am sure he can go a long way.

  26. I'm stuck in America...But hell I'd fly there to listen to a voice like that a thousand times over...and that may not mean much to most of you but im deathly afraid of flying...

  29. dear Gregg, I just saw your performances on B's GT yesterday-- and today the sound of your voice and your tremendous presence are still around! Simon is such a STODGE. I suspect that you 2 are at opposite ends of some spectrum and that he wasn't big enough to step over it.
    Your semifinal performance was over the top! and your costume designer is too-- that cape was spectacular! Very well done!
    I wish you all the best, my dear. And give your dotiing aunties an extra big hugg.

  32. Here it is, 4 years after BGT and I still love listening to Gregg's video. In fact, it's playing right now. He is totally incredible! We only get the videos here in the USA but wish we got the actual show. I had two other favorites but not sure if they were from the same season. Julian Smith and his saxophone, and of course, Paul Potts and Susan Boyle. Looks like Britain has a lot of very talented people! I hope Gregg got a big break and is no longer working in a hotel!

  34. Heard this for the first time last night and have listened several times since. I've shared with many family members and friends. We are all enchanted! Greg, you have an awesome, God-given talent, and you're humble, handsome, and funny besides. If you need an American Grandma, let me know!

  36. Greg, maybe BGT has some great champions, but you have something that i've never seen before. I just can't understand why nobody in the bussiness has ever considered your enormous artistic and commercial potential. The way you sing and the way you look is absolutely fantastic and so refreshing as well. It's kind of classic but alternative at the same time. I'm sure there is a place for you in the music industry, I can't imagine how good quality records would be released if you were put in the right hands. Maybe it's not too much -if not nothing- for you, but you have a great fun in Spain, and I wish you best of luck.

  37. I think he should follow his ambition to be a pro singer. he has a unique voice and deserves to become successful. He also has a good personality and rapport with his audience. Well done Greg.
